get a different phenomenon. mitch mcconnell took a much harder line, and it really was he has a mandate for his failed policies. that is not what this election was about. anything that happens now has to meet the approval of the house republicans or it is not going anywhere. that i think is in many ways also a false bluster, because what we see going on in the senate is roiling change that mcconnell does not necessarily control, which is 48 senators from across the board working with the fix-the-debt coalition, and the business community to come up with a simpson-bowles template. there will not be a plan. >> what you see is the scenario? >> especially on the fiscal cliff? >> you will not see much difference between this on this. mort, i think it is impossible to write serious law during a lame duck that would constitute an agreement with any substance other than, and something set up behind them once again, to go into the fact if the next congress does not actually produce them. but the idea that they could do something that delivers on the promise of tax reform, which, when y

. mitch mcconnell released this statement. i know some people think tuesday's results mean washington is going to roll over and agree to democratic demands that we hike tax rates. i'm here to tell them there's no truth to that notion. this is the stand off we have. i'm going to let you reset the table and all of you weigh in after this break. ing. and a trip to the one place with the new ideas that help us pull it all together. from the things that hang and shine... ...to the things that sparkle and jingle. all while saving the things that go in our wallet. more saving. more doing. that's the power of the home depot. right now, get an assortment of martha stewart living ornamen,s free when you purchase select artificial trees. begins with back pain and a choice. take advil, and maybe have to take up to four in a day. or take aleve, which can relieve pain all day with just two pills. good eye. who have used androgel 1%, there's big news. presenting androgel 1.62%. both are used to treat men with low testosterone. androgel 1.62% is from the makers of the number one prescribed testostero
. and it is the guys in the beltway, john boehner, mitch mcconnell, the leaders reverses the guys outside the beltway. the guys in iowa, rick santorum, the folks in south carolina who gave the primary to newt gingrich. beyond that, i feel -- ever since george of the bush's second term, there has been an anti-establishment reaction within the republican party. they were embarrassed and angry with the bush administration. conservatism turned out to not be what they wanted. they wanted small government conservatism. i think everybody loves to many people into the tea party caldron. but you get the types that are determined to come here and do something against leadership. in ohio, he mentioned he likes the trappings of office, if you will. he mentioned to me, how much leadership can you exert? how much control can you exert over your own conference? given the freshmen. and he said to be, it is not the freshmen. he said it is some of the older members. he did not say who. i would have preferred if he did. that is those who are trying to have perfect scores on these ratings. they are the problem. because
direction to go. if jim demint ends up taking a leadership job in this republican party, or mitch mcconnell stays there, the way mitch mcconnell is talking right now, i think it means they haven't learned these lessons and aiming at something other than a majority. they're aiming at something else. >> that used to be, to take that job, running the party campaign committee is a career-making step in washington. and i think there was a report today, supposedly, marco rubio was being talked about, to run the committee for the republicans in the next cycle, that has no interest in doing it. you can't recruit candidates and say, we're going to put our support behind you. they're going to still lose the primary. >> it's a lose/lose situation in terms of those internal dynamics. steve kornacki, ow also seem very spry today, like ed. >> lots of caffeine. i'm going to crash this weekend. >> i understand. all right. thanks, steve. >>> all right, so, how did the unfortunate comments about rape caucus do in last night's elections? surprisingly poorly. that very cheery story is coming up next. so you sa
of the deal on the debt ceiling last year. >> it came out of mitch mcconnell's office. harry reid went along with it. mcconnell voted for it. john mccain who is a big critic of the defense part of the sequester, it was he voted for it. paul ryan voted for it. so you know, i'm not saying democrats are blameless here or don't deserve some of the responsibility but the idea that republicans are washing their hands and saying this is a white house ploy is completely wrong. >> bill: i was at the white house friday when president obama came into the east room and made a very short speech. very clear about what his plan is and what he wanted. here's the president with one challenge to members of congress. >> obama: i'm open to compromise. i'm open to new ideas. i'm committed to solving our fiscal challenges. but i refuse to accept any approach that isn't balanced. >> bill: what does he mean by that? >> balanced. he's saying first of all it's not just spending cuts. it has to be revenues as well. second, he's rejecting the j
to happen with the republican party. [video clip] >> the republican national chairman, mitch mcconnell, john boehner, and other republican leaders behind the epic election failure of 2012 should be replaced with leaders more in tune with the conservative base of the republican party. likewise, established republican consultants establishedkarl rove, romney campaign senior advisers, and pollsters should never be hired to run or consult on a national campaign again. nobody would give a dime to the ineffective super pacs like american crossroads. the loss was the death rattle of the establishment republican party. the disaster of 2012 signals the beginning of the battle to take over the republican party and the opportunity to establish the gop as the party of small government, constitutional conservative. host: do you agree with that assessment? guest: not at all. k i do karl rove, the pollster for the romney campaign, and all the others he listed, the republican national chairman -- they are not the problem. the truth is, while i think the tea party is a great addition to the party, the candid
is very nervous about whether he's going to maintain his speakership. mitch mcconnell is very nervous about how the senate is going to react to the new situation on capitol hill. it's going to take some time for this to play out. it's just going--it's not going to happen quickly. and if people think--people watching the news, eliot might be thinking that republicans suddenly are going to release that they have to change their stripes, and they have to be different--no, no, no. they're not going to realize that suddenly at all. >> eliot: this was not an epiphany moment for the republican party. you said something interesting. that john boehner may be worried about his speakership. who would challenge him and how likely would it be that they could succeed. >> it would be eric cantor or mccartymccarthy from california. they're more in line with the tea party caucus. as of right now i don't think anythings that changed as a result of this election to suggest that that faction in the house has lost any power. now we'll see when they all get back to town, and they all start talking to each
, mitch mcconnell, they don't give a damn about. don't give a rat's ass about. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." >>for every discouraged voter, there are ten angry ones taking action. trickle down does not work. in romney's world, cars get the elevator and the workers get the shaft. that is a whole bunch of bunk. the powerful may steal an election, but they can't steal democracy. >> bill: it is thursday, november 8, two days after president obama's decisive victory. our decisive victory. four more years for the obama agenda. great to see you today. take your calls at 1-866-55-press. and peter just before we get to -- back to the national picture, just reading during the break from the latest edition of california political week or cal-peak, this speaks to what we were talking about. how the republican party has lost its edge particularly among latinos, women young voters. in california, my state california republican party used to have 63.2% of voter registration. registered voters in california. republicans. today,
about the fiscal cliff right now, whether you're in the white house or your mitch mcconnell, which are trying to devise a some kind of cover for john boehner. the voters last night in the exit polls said that they're willing to take higher taxes but they think the government is too big. that's the deal that banner and obama almost got two years ago. so it's there. is within reach but dana has to be given some kind of cover that he can bring, 140 republican votes with him. it's going to be very difficult to do. obama will have to decide whether he wants to go off the cliff to give it up that preoccupation that we have with bush tax cuts, or whether he's going, the better passers, try to cloak into something big and mushy and do we like tax reform, and stretch it out and let the deal be massaged in such a way to increase revenue and more money for growth. anything to avoid that horrible road called a tax increase. but this is the hard work that is ahead. obama has got to make that decision. >> we heard the last panel toggle bit redistricting and its impact on partisanship, especially
they tell me, ali, i had a discussion with mitch mcconnell on this, he said we're willing to put the high revenues on the table. we're willing to get -- close the loopholes and the tax system, get rid of a lot of the carveouts. and a lot of those carveouts the people who benefit from those are rich people. i think republicans are willing to compromise on this. i have to say this. i'm frustrated with all of you on this because, yes, we have a fiscal cliff that's going to hit on january. but let's not forget the whole context of this. we are running $1.2 trf did he ever sits. >> david walker is banging on this drum as well. >> the key is we have to avoid the fiscal cliff. we also have to address the much bigger fiscal abyss. those are the large and growing structural deficits due to known demographic trends, rising health care cost and outdated tax system. here's got news. the people are way ahead of the politicians. i just came back from a 34-day, 10,000-mile tour. we got 77% support for a range of reforms dealing with spending, social insurance programs and taxes. 85% believe it's going t
and both political parties to meet with him at the white house next friday. senators harry reid, mitch mcconnell, and speaker boehner and congresswoman nancy pelosi will be there. this afternoon, we heard the president say just about two hours ago, that he is open to compromise. he's open to new ideas received by a standing ovation walking in the room there. there is one point the president is sticking to. higher taxes for people making higher incomes. >> i refuse to accept any approach that isn't balanced. i'm not going to ask student and seniors and middle-class families to pay down the entire deficit while people like me making over $250,000 aren't asked to pay a dime more in taxes. >> just about two hours before we saw the president, we saw this man, republican house speaker john boehner, he said, quote, everything on the revenue side and the spending side has to be looked at, end quote. when it comes to specifics, speaker boehner put the ball firmly in the president's court. >> i don't want to box myself in. i don't want to box anyone else in. i think it is important for us to come to an ag
. that person is not really identified right now. mitch mcconnell leads the senate minority. john boehner leads the house majority but they're not leading the party. and -- i'm sorry. lori: will paul ryan have resurgence? >> that is interesting question. he lost his home state. governor romney and paul ryan lost his home state in wisconsin. they didn't do well there. he, to me it is a very open question as to what his role will be. it will be obviously have the opportunity to create a role and to define himself better but he sure going to have to be more than a one-trick pony. he has to learn to say something besides budget. it is really important that he go beyond that in his, in his political persona. the, you know the republicans have got lots of smart folks but man those smart folks have to start thinking and they have got to start working. we have a lot of lazy republicans it looks to me like. and i'm talking about leading the party, and it in its various factions. we have lazy republicans when it comes to turning out to vote. that was the big deal. melissa: go vote. lou dobbs, thank you s
. >> i guess -- oh, you've always asked that question except to mitch mcconnell. >> he missed the question. joan what happened there was luke russert got to ask a question during speaker -- former speaker pelosi's press conference yesterday with all of the democratic-elected officials on stage. and he asked about her age and about the fact that she's hanging on to the leadership position and isn't that depriving someone younger of getting it. and former speaker pelosi astutely pointed out that he would never ask that question of mitch mcconnell and then she said this. >> let's, for a moment, honor it as a legitimate question. although it is quite offensive but you don't realize that, i guess. the fact is -- the fact is that everything that i have done in my almost -- i guess decade now of leadership is to elect younger and newer people to the congress. >> john: that's a smackdown luke russert. i mean that's just -- come on. you don't! when have you ever heard someone bring up age -- even john mccain. no one e
that mitch mcconnell is acting defiant and boner is like -- okay. >> he is like a whipped puppy. >> stephanie: we have not endorsed the failures and excesses of the president's first term. >> says the guy who is the minority leader in the senate. >> stephanie: yeah. republican insiders focused on the approaching problem. the republican -- >> where are the white people at? >> stephanie: exactly. the party must find a way to temper talk about immigration without infuriating conservatives -- you can't just say if you fix the tone you fix the problem, you have to figure out what kind of policy issues we have. it's not just their tone it's the way they talk about people their policies -- i really think the president stopping the deportation, the dream act all of that stuff, it's because he thinks it is the right thing to do. many republicans say first they must find ways to appeal to women. >> by stop being such a-holes would be a start. >> for one. >> stephanie: and jim, i have a very, very special edition -- [♪ "jeopardy" theme music ♪] >> stephanie: wh
to note. one serious, one not-so-serious. here at cnbc in the business world we're parsing mitch mcconnell and john boehner like you guys are to see what realistic possibility there is to get some sort of deal, whether it will be in the lame duck or will continue to kick the can down the road. that's the discussion. and also i don't know what your habits are for thanksgiving. generally speaking, black friday is when people go shopping, crazy people get in line and that's when the companies turn into the black for the year. walmart is setting 8:00 p.m. as the start of their sales on thanksgiving day! >> oh, my goodness. >> that is when my kids are in bed and i sneak back into the fridge for number three helping. >> wow. 78:00 p.m. the previous day. >> brutal. >> that's awful! >> that's family time. >> hey, brian, thanks so much. we appreciate it. we'll be right back. humans -- even when we cross our t's and dot our i's, we still run into problems. namely, other humans. which is why, at liberty mutual insurance, auto policies come with new car replacement and accident forgiveness if you qual
